      Food and Wine of Marseille
      Amazing tour with Sophia. Great group on the tour and interesting food and some very nice wines. The weather was perfect and everyone in great form after the rugby match the previous evening. We won 🙌🏼

      Marseille Tourist Office's Verdict: 'A Culinary Tour Guide Serving Food from a Thermos'
      When we complained to the Marseille Tourist Office, they said our guide was known as "a man who guides a culinary tour and serves food from a thermos." It seems others had similar experiences. There were a group of six French people, two German tourists, and two guide interns on the "3-hour walking food tour." I think one of the recent reviews might be from an intern pretending to be a tourist. The German girls are also upset about the poor quality of the tour and are in touch with us. 
We started by drinking fish soup from a thermos, accompanied by poutargue, in the middle of a gallery where we felt out of place.

 We couldn't get chickpea crepes because the place was closed, much to our guide's surprise. 
 Then, our guide wanted us to drink anise liqueur from a thermos in front of the Opera when another place was closed. 
In a desperate move, our guide led us to a dingy shop that sold cheese, fish, and meat together. The guide ordered one small cheese to share, plus whelks and chickpea chips that expired six months ago. We ate them because we were hungry.

 It was only later that we noticed the chips' expiration date. When we pointed this out to our guide, she said that such items don’t spoil. After looking around, I noticed that there were a lot of expired items being sold in this shop. It seems like it might even specialize in selling such things. We didn't finish the whelks, and the guide told to the shop owner that her son would pick them up later in the afternoon.
 After two hours, we realized it was a scam and confronted the guide. We even called her boss, but he didn't want to talk to us. The guide said there would be more to see and taste, so we followed, skeptical. And rightly so. Our "grand finale" consisted of one bottle of wine, two baguettes, two identical cheeses, and some tapenade jars arranged haphazardly on a random bench. Please refer to the attached photo of our pitiful picnic for eight.

 In conclusion, this experience was not only disappointing but also a clear case of being scammed.

      dommage mais pas vraiment de votre faute
      I attended a tour with a group of two Germans and six French people, as indicated on the site the tours can be done in several languages ​​so here we had French and German mixed since it was not a private tour. This really annoyed the French so there was a bad atmosphere from the start... We tasted tapenade, an anchoidade, wine, whelk, pastis, two cheeses, soup, poutargue, rouille which is already 9 dégustations. We visited the districts which hides the history of Marseille and its ships explained well by the guide , we also visited the Marché de Noaille, it is a place hidden from tourists which clearly shows the diversity in the history of Marseille. Unfortunately at 2/3 of the tour the French were unsatisfied because they didn't have enough to eat, and stopped the tour to attack the guide instead of leaving (as they kept saying) they couldve asked for a refund or an explanation from the boss after the tour. Because of this the end of the tour was rushed with only half an hour left because we lost 30 min arguing we were not able to visit the quartier du panier. Unfortunately this all happened because of unsatisfied customers, which I can understand but dont ruin the experience for others please.

      Must do tour in beautiful Marseille
      Marseille was our first port of call on our cruise. We chose to book a wine tour with provence amazing tours. The 6 of us had a great time. We visited 2 vineyards in the beautiful provence countryside, we were then taken for a drive up in the hills with some amazing views. Our driver Laurent was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained during our journey. He even gave us some tips for our next stop in Cannes

      Toulon, Bandol and Cassis tour
      We booked this tour based on all the positive reviews and Laurent did not disappoint. He was very accommodating as we changed our plans last minute. He showed us places only locals knew about. He provided a lot of historical information, insights and injected humor to keep the tour lively and fun. We enjoyed his company and would highly recommend his tour to anyone wanting to experience Cote D' Azur like a local.

      Fabulous tour
      Our group of 5 had an amazing day with Laurent. He picked us up from our cruise ship and took us to some excellent wineries. His knowledge of the local area is incredible and kept us entertained throughout the day. He even provided a mic for us to have a wee sing song in the car (Scottish & French classics!). His ears must have been bleeding with our terrible singing voices! He provided excellent translation so we got the most out of the wine tastings. Laurent took us on the scenic route back to Marseille port providing us with panoramic views and plenty of opportunities to take some stunning photos. I would love to take another tour with Laurent if and when we return to the area. Thanks so much!

      Interesting and fun exploration of Marseille
      My brother in law and I had a really fun tour with Laurent, who was v informative and genuinely cared about us learning about the fabulous city. Although not as much wine as we thought there would be.. we were provided with a great sample of food, snacks and drinks (much of which Laurent himself had prepared). Laurent even helped us to get to the Basilique Notre Dame de la Garde, which he didn’t have to do (v kind). You should definitely do this trip to explore, discover new things and laugh a lot.

      Do Not Book with him
      Do not book! We were on a cruise. I Had a medical emergency, needed to leave my cruise and canceled our tour 30 hrs prior to arriving to marseille. No where in Laurent’s website does he list refund policy. He showed no compassion and refused to issue even a partial refund. And he is somewhat confused. Called me a month prior to my trip asking where we should meet the next day. Then questioned where and when I paid—and I needed to show him my receipt. I had to do his bookkeeping and he refuses to answer my emails now. Shady dude

      Horrible experience with Provence Amazing Tours. We received an email canceling the tour, without reason, on the morning of the tour. We were notified just as we were about to walk off the ship. We had paid for this tour, for 8 people, in full, over 2 weeks prior.

      Perfect Day from Aix to Cassis
      What a wonderful day from start to finish! Laurent was so attentive and taught us so much from Aix all the way to Cassis. He made sure we had everything we needed so Charlotte (7 yr old daughter) could swim in the sea! Took us to a great restaurant in Cassis for lunch, gorgeous view and delicious food. He even squeezed in a wine tasting at a nearby winery and made sure our wine was properly packed for our trip home. It was a perfect day ! Thank you, Laurent :)

      Walking Food Tour of Aix en Provence
      We had an absolutely amazing day with Laurent in Aix. He picked us up from our cruise ship in Marseilles and our first stop was a walk to a beautiful spot where Cezanne painted. We enjoyed delicious homemade snacks and an aperitif. After a lovely stroll, we drove to Aix. Once there, we sampled several specialties of the area from shops and an outdoor market. We concluded with a picnic of bouillabaisse and other fabulous treats. Laurent was fun to be with and created a truly incredible day.

      Exciting times
      The tour was so exciting and valuable. Laurent told us a lot of local information, history, and culture. Above all, he was very kind. We booked the tour last minute and put a lot of strain on him, but he was polite and communicative. I would like to recommend this tour to people from all countries as it was easy to understand even for those of us who are not fluent in English!

      Charming villages
      Our group enjoyed our day in the Villages of Luberon and our guide/driver Laurent. The wine tasting was fun and the villages we saw, charming. It is a distance from the port and lunch ran long, so part of the day was rushed in order to return to the ship on time. Laurent is a lot of fun and not only informative but entertaining.

    We loved our tour with Laurent!! Even though it was pouring rain most of the day, we still say this was our favorite tour of the trip. Laurent picked us up from our cruise port and right away we knew we were going to love him. He was friendly, enthusiastic & knowledgeable. He even practiced French with me. We enjoyed trying the local cuisine and he even went out of the way to find my father-in-law macaroons. We will definitely be visiting again because of Laurent. Thank you!

    We were a party of six for our Marseille port day tour. Laurent entertained and educated us as we traveled to the site where Cezanne painted a famous mountain scene. Then we went to a local market in Aix where we sampled cheese, meat and produce before a quick stop to sip espresso noisette. He then gave us a choice of a restaurant lunch or to gather items for a picnic. We choose the latter and were treated to a spectacular afternoon! Walking quickly to various shops we gathered wine, cheese, meat, bread and dessert for our picnic. He clearly knew the right places to go. With food and wine in hand, he brought us to our mountain top picnic with its' commanding views of country, sea and the small fishing village of Cassis. I must say the picturesque view, wine and delightful food gave me a near spiritual moment. Yes, the macarons were really that good! On our drive back we visited the cathedral of Notre Dame. This was my favorite cathedral in our travels so far because of its beauty and sense of intimacy. My appreciation of Laurent grew throughout the day and his tour was the most outstanding of our 2 week trip to Europe. He was knowledgeable, efficient, quite flexible and absolutely fun! I would highly recommend him based on our amazing tour that he provided for our small group.

    About half of the food on this tour is home made by Laurent, who used to be a professional chef before he gave it up to run tours. And oh my gosh was it amazing! I don't even like olives, but I loved the olives he served us.

    We booked and paid for this on 25Apr and received a confirmation for the tour. On 27Apr when we showed up for the tour and could not find the agent, we called and were told he was double booked and so will refund us the monies. This should have been told to us earlier so we could have made other plans.
